Flares After Vaccination

Has anyone experienced new or worsening flare symptoms after getting a COVID-19 vaccine?

  1. Yes I experienced a trigger after about 10 hours of taking the first dose of covishield. The pain strangely increased on taking pain killers, NSAIDs and physiotherapy sessions too (IFT, diathermy). So I left taking them all and just beared it. I am now fine after a week.

    1. Hey Anthony!

      I get this question in my DM's sometimes from the article I wrote about it not too long ago. I did end up actually having some new symptoms pop up shortly after writing that one. I actually ended up developing scalp psoriasis and horrible arthritis in my hands, including trigger finger in my pinky. So, I got to add psoriatic arthritis onto my list of chronic illnesses! Whoopdeedo 😅 I can't say with 100% certainty that the vaccine caused it, but the timing was very suspicious!
